Celebrating their 30th year of business, Peterson Pacific Corp. is a Eugene, Oregon based manufacturer of grinders, chippers, debarkers, screens, and blower trucks that serve a wide variety of markets. The company has 110,000 square feet of modern manufacturing space with a capable and innovative engineering group. Peterson machines are sold and supported through a worldwide network of distributors and direct sales and service representatives. 2010 was a year of significant growth with the Peterson dealer network in North America, with 20 dealers now representing their products.
Peterson horizontal grinders reduce wood, low value logs and other organic materials. The reduced material is used in the compost, mulch and biomass energy markets. Peterson grinders can also reduce certain construction and demolition materials such as asphalt shingles that can then be recycled and used in hot mix asphalt paving. Peterson drum and disc chippers and debarkers are used to produce wood chips for pulp and paper production as well as biomass energy markets. Peterson blower trucks and trailers are used to broadcast compost and mulch for landscaping and erosion control. Peterson deck screens are used for classifying materials to maximize the value of each product. Many Peterson machines are available in either electric or diesel power depending on the application. For increased mobility at a job site, both tracked and wheeled versions of many of their products are available.
2010 showed steady growth in the biomass markets and Peterson introduced their new 4300, and 4310 drum chippers for high volume biomass production. For biomass jobs that also demand the ability to produce clean chips, Peterson also introduced the 5900EL Disc Chipper. Peterson continues to innovate new ways to produce biomass, with new ideas such as the 12-pocket drum to produce micro-chips for pelletizing, and a flexible chip spout to assist with chipping operations that have limited work areas to load machines. For 30-years, Peterson has specialized in producing machines that turn low-grade organic materials into high value products.
